Kathryn is shell-shocked! She steres at James. “Please James, tell me this is a joke. Tell me it’s isn’t true. Tell me she didn’t do that,” she cries. “Kiki, I wouldn’t joke with such matter. She told me to my face that I couldn’t have fathered her children, that I should go see a doctor. The doctor confirmed it. I couldn’t have fathered those kids!” James says, his eyes misty. “Oh no! What will you do now? What will my sister say! This is so sad, dear,” Kathryn says. “Now,…

Over glasses of juice, Alice says, “So who are you leaving this flat for? “Dave’s cousin is moving in here,” Kathryn replies, adding, “Auntie, remember the secret you talked about the other day? What is it?” “Kiki, let’s allow sleeping dogs to lie,” auntie Alice says. “No auntie. We agreed that sisters do not hide things from each other. I want to know whatever it is. Moreover, I have a confession to make,” Kathryn replies. Alice takes a very deep breath. “Kiki, let’s just forget about the past and look…

  The two ladies stare at each other. “Kiki! How did you hook my brother in-law? Anyway, I’ve always known you to be a smart girl. I told you so, remember? Where did you meet him? Dave is a perfect gentleman,” Alice says conspiratorially. “Hmmmmmmmmm Auntie, I met Dave in a club,” Kathryn begins but Alice cuts in and asks, “Club?” “Yeah, but I wasn’t on duty.

Kathryn has to be careful with this man. Despite the fact that Dave knows about her past, knowing a man who had been with her, especially a brother, can kill his spirit. “I beg of you, James. Do not kill this chance of your brother making an honest woman of me. I told you what led me into that trade. I went into it because I had no other choice.

Dave, rock hard, kneels before Kathryn. She admires him for some seconds as she catches her breath, then she adjusts on the divan and takes him in. It’s like magic, a kind of peace settles in her mind. For the first time in her life, she takes in an unsheathed man without worry. The feeling is heavenly. Dave takes her gently. “Honey,” he says in a voice thick with emotion, “No more sheaths for us. I will remain true and loyal to you.” Some answers are better given through action….

    Dave’s heart flutters. He draws the papers towards him, and gives the doctor an inquisitive stare. His heart beats wildly. Without looking at the laboratory result, he raises his eyebrow. “Spill it doc,” he says dryly and clears his throat. The doctor stares at him grimly and asks, “How long have you been married?” That question throws Dave off balance. “Em…er…we’re getting married,” he replies, wondering if he had said anything at all. “Oh good,” the doctor says, his face breaking into smiles. “Then do that immediately and…

Kathryn’s long silence was disconcerting. Ben looked up at her. He was broken. Her heart melted. She went and knelt before him, took his hands and said, “Ben, there is nothing wrong with you. You’ve obviously done well for yourself in every other way. You are not impotent, I saw enough to know that. So whatever defect you have is in your mind. “All women are not equally endowed, so are men. You are even better endowed than some men, but no one wears that on his sleeve. You are…
